    I love it. It's how I survive.

    Songwriting is the best form of expression to me. Not only do I get to make music, but I get to let it out though playing it. The writing process is always interesting to me. I'd love to hear some lyrics and, more importantly, why you wrote the song, what the lyrics mean, and...

    "Lord Save My Children"

    As I was growing up, many times I would sit in a nearby room and listen to my mother pray. Sometimes she would pray for over 2 hours naming all twelve of her children and I would patiently wait to hear my name and hope she would pray for me. My eyes would tear up and I felt so...

    I tend to have the creative tendencies hit me

    The Table of My Heart {The Song}

    The Songs I Write Are expressions of My Feelings

    The songs I write show my emotions.  When I can't say anything I write it all down and put in musical notes to accompany it.  It helps so much.

    Struggling Songwriter.

    I've written over 100 songs. My true dream is to connect with some producers who want to collaborate with me and make a song, and I'd hire singers. The bad part is I live in a small town and don't know any singers. I've tried reaching out to people on Craigslist, to no avail...

    Farther From My Heart

    Well most of my songs are intended to be closer to the genre of the fray (pop-rock and speak to a deeper level of emotion than most)...this next one I can envision as more of a country song (like one of Taylor Swift's more upbeat songs where she kind of sing/talks. Let me know...

    this world lost, but when I discovered that I could write songs I finally found something that I was good at. It's great because nobody can tell you how to do it correctly. I love it.

    Nothing better than writing a song, getting it together with a band and playing it live, or better still hearing it on the radio (yes it has happened quite a few times) ... or best still seeing it on TV (a couple of times) .. like a childhood dream come true ..
